Roman Polanski Sues to be Reinstated to the Academy

  • Today in Why Aren't You Dead yet news, Roman "Serial Rapist" Polanski has filed a lawsuit to be let back into the Academy, nearly a year after he and Bill "Serial Rapist Part 2" Cosby were kicked out.

  • "The Academy committed a prejudicial abuse of discretion in that the Academy failed to proceed in a manner required by law, the Academy's expulsion decision is not supported by the findings, and the Academy's findings are not supported by the evidence," says his lawyer

  • Also says that since he's a prolific director and was allowed to keep his Oscar for The Pianist, that should be good enough to ignore the fact that he's also been accused of raping multiple women, particularly when they were underaged.
